The club had its licence terminated following a dispute with Arena Coventry Limited over unpaid rent and moved its staff away from the ground last week.

But chief executive Tim Fisher is looking to reach terms on a deal ahead of Friday's clash with leaders Doncaster.

"The long-term license was terminated by the administrator, but we are hopeful that Coventry City Football Club (Holdings) Ltd can reach agreement with ACL to allow the team to play its final three games of the season at the Ricoh," he told the club's official website.

"We appreciate that our supporters have been through a great deal of upset and uncertainty and there is a responsibility on all parties to ensure that the question of where we play our remaining three home games is resolved as soon as possible.

"Allowing supporters to watch the Sky Blues at the Ricoh for three games would be a sensible step forward. We have contacted ACL and hope to have some clarity in the next 24 hours."
